I know good source and headphones make the biggest difference in sound quality. I've just added Little Dot I+ to my chain, and noticed the difference. That led me to wonder how much of difference I can expect out of dedicated external DACs.
Would I be able to tell the difference between iPad's DAC to FiiO E7's DAC? How about from E7 to Pico USB DAC to V-DAC to DACMagic? I'm looking any where form $100 to $500 to spend on DAC, and I'm like to know how much return I would get compared to non-dedicated external DACs.
I'm also curious if those up-sampling feature makes any difference to normal CD ripped MP3s.
